The BYU student was arrested Friday when his terrible roommates ratted on him to police after seeing a strange cooking setup in his room. Police came, looked at the setup, and determined that Cazier, a devout Mormon who recently returned from his two-year mission, is Provo’s own Heisenberg.
Cazier’s attorney told the Salt Lake City FOX affiliate that Cazier isn’t a meth cook, he just enjoys making organic soaps in his free time.
“Nothing could be further from the truth,” Reneer said. “He makes organic soaps. He does herbal extracts. He’s kind of into the organic chemistry thing. It would be the Mormon equivalent of brewing your own beer.”
A quick search online shows tutorials for making soap that involves equipment and a crystallization process Reneer believes is similar to what you would see in a drug lab.
“It’s unlikely that the investigators even knew what they were picking up,” Reneer said. “Obviously, it’s clear what they think they saw.”
Cazier didn’t even know his apartment had been searched until his parents told him after seeing it on the news.
It’s hard to believe that a Mormon missionary and college student is living a double life as a meth cook, but if “Breaking Bad” taught me anything, it’s that meth cooks are always the people you least expect. In this scenario, it actually looks like Cazier isn’t a meth-creating psychopath. He’s just a weirdo who likes to make organic soaps in his free time. I bet his roommates feel like shit..
